A beautiful way of using your Essential Oils at Christmas time is to naturally scent Christmas gift cards or tags, and it’s an absolute cinch to do! Infusing your cards or tags with cheerful aromas will add that extra nuance to your gift giving this year.
What you need:
Gift Cards or Tags
Large paper bag or box, or resealable plastic bag (large enough to hold all the cards)
Cotton wool ball or pad
2-3 drops Essential Oils (see the combination ideas for blend suggestions)
Citrus Spice Blend | a Heritage Oils Blend of Valencia Orange, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Clove Bud and Cardamom
Candy Cane | A delightful peppermint candy inspired Blend
1 drop Peppermint Essential Oil + 1 drop Vanilla Five Fold Extract + 1 drop Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
Gingerbread Man | Reminiscent of Christmas baking!
1 drop Ginger Essential Oil + 1 drop Clove Bud Essential Oil + 1 drop Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil
Christmas Star | Gentle resin and wood aroma with a citrus burst
1 drop Frankincense Essential Oil + 1 drop WA Sandalwood Essential Oil+ 1 drop Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil
Place the cards/tags (and envelopes if scenting those too) in a large paper or plastic bag or cardboard box.
Add your chosen Essential Oils, 2-3 drops in total should be enough, onto the cotton wool ball/pad and carefully place it in with the cards/tags, ensuring the cotton wool doesn’t come into direct contact with the cards and stain them.
Seal the bag or pop the lid on if using a box.
Allow the cards/tags to sit and infuse those gorgeous scents for 1-2 days.
Remove the cards/tags ready for filling with your heartfelt festive messages!
This process can be used for scent wrapping paper also!
